Summer is the season when we do not want to wear tonnes of makeup, it’s all about the glowing, healthy looking skin with just a hint of blush.
And let’s not forget glossy and vibrant manicure and pedicure.
So here are a few luxury products which were recently released and which seem like a dream.
Gucci are killing it with their beauty releases lately, and the newest nail polish capsule collection, inspired by the iconic Hollywood films, is not an exception.
Those bottles and colours! You can choose from:
About time for me to write about my Winter 2020 favourites. If you want to check out my Autumn favourites, here they are.
So which products stood out to me beauty, style, books and shows wise?
Let’s start with makeup, as there are just a few products in this category:
YSL Touche Eclat, £26 from John Lewis, Harrods, Selfridges and Nordstrom. Touch Eclat needs no introduction, I’ve lost my count on how many of these I’ve used up. It has that a light-reflective effect which makes you look fresher; the formula is not heavy or detectable on the skin.
This is such a brilliant highlighter, it is more on the glowing side but without being over-the-top. Exactly the kind of product you would expect from Queen Tilbury. It gives you that incredible polished look.
Rouge Bunny Rouge new Glassy Gloss (review and swatches)
I wore quite a few of the new RBR glosses, I wrote a detailed review about them. Can be worn sheer stain-like or opaque and glossy. The one I chose for this feature is Berry Sorbet, a creamy opaque berry pink. For me it’s “my lips but better” kind of shade.
Burberry Cat Lashes Mascara, £24 from Burberry
Soft and flexible brush allows you to layer and built up the effect. I find it to be giving great result, elongating the lashes, opening up the eye and lasting all day long (on me at least).

A long-time favourite. Intense, ultra black, long-lasting and
AW19 Eye Shadow Palettes: Victoria Beckham, Charlotte Tilbury, Pat McGrath, Urban Decay and Anastasia
Let’s take a look at the new eye shadows launches, shall we?
First of all, the most exciting news – Victoria Beckham launched her Beauty line. So far, there are only eye makeup products but VB will bring out lips and face ones gradually. You can get it from Cult Beauty.
Shown above are the Smoky Eye Bricks (£48 each) which are described as Satin Matte Eyeshadows. There are four shades to chose from: Signature, Tuxedo, Royal and Tweed. And, while I was contemplating which one to get, Signature or Tweed, they were sold out. Don’t worry though, as they will be back in stock September 23rd. However, I did manage to get a Satin Kajal Liner in Bordeaux (£20) and Lid Lustre in Mink (£28).
Charlotte is a genius when it comes to advertising and marketing. She knows how to make people want her products. She just launched her third Christmas palette, and made it available only for a day in September. But it is coming back, along with other products, in October.
If you are not familiar with her Christmas palettes, they are divided into four looks, and this time they are: Happy Glow (gold and caramel), Love Glow (pinks), Dream Glow (greens) and Seduce Glow ( festive shimmers and black).
Here is a photo of her previous two palettes, so that it gives you a better idea.
Autumn is the time to be browsing foundations, as so many brands are bringing new ones out. So here are just a few that caught my attention. And it’s incredible how brands now do such a wide variety of shades, and some even demonstrate all shades applied.
Chanel Ultra Le Teint Velvet, £37. Comes in 15 shades.
“Longwearing foundation that naturally smoothes and evens out the complexion. Its blurring effect erases all imperfections and ensures makeup with a matte velvet finish.
Ultra-light, ultra-matte and ultra-natural, it instantly becomes one with the skin for a flawless complexion all day long”.
Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Foundation, £34, There are 44 shades to choose from, and there is a before and after for each shade.
“Helps to achieve a smooth, natural look. Featuring a
When it comes to films and series, there are usually a lot of “Steal Her Style” features where the authors suggest what pieces you could buy to get a similar look to your favourte character, should you chose to do so.
But there are not enough articles which focus on beauty or makeup looks, if you ask me. And that is what I always pay attention to when I watch films/series. I actually wrote about the beauty elements of Gossip Girl, as well as Blair Waldorf‘s wedding makeup and Sex and The City already.
I also had a breakdown of the Pan Am looks straight from the Make-Up Artist.
So today I’d like to share about the makeup from the Big Little Lies. Here are the screens from the show when Celeste Wright was getting ready in
